Cruise 2014: Highlights from Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman was our first port of call. For each destination, it would have been easy enough to just go to the beach and set the boys free for a couple hours but I wanted them to gain something from this trip. It's hard when cruise excursions aren't really designed for cultural enrichment but I had to try.

For our first port, we signed up for a day trip around the island to Pedro St. James (a historic building), Hell and Seven Mile Beach. I figure anything that ended with some time at the beach would be fine with the boys. And I was right - they put with the bus ride, walking around the grounds of Pedro St. James (it was very small anyway), a surprise stop at the rum cake factory which they were not pleased about, and a quick stop in Hell to mail out postcards.

We eventually arrived at the beach and though it was crowded, the boys played happily until the ominous clouds overhead finally burst and poured rain down on us. We wrapped the boys in towels, hopped back onto the bus and little Caleb fell asleep on the way back to the ship.
